I'm directing followups to questions at, as that's the correct
place for a questions like this.

htpasswd is part of the Apache webserver.  Have you installed Apache?
If you've _just_ installed Apache, many shells do not immediately
recognize new programs after installation.  The default BSD shell is
one of these.  To get around the problem, either logout/log back in
or issue the "rehash" command to tell the shell to refresh it's
list of installed programs.  If you aren't sure if you have Apache
installed, issue "pkg_info | grep apache" and see if it's listed.
If Apache isn't installed, read the ports/packages section of the
handbook for help:

Hope this helps.
